DESIGN

Timeless Boulevard is inspired by my quest for simplicity, connectedness, and great health. It is driven by my passionate curiosity. It is a celebration of life’s journeys and quirks.

The color theme evokes the feeling of fresh and the magic of smiles.

Timeless Boulevard visual theme is designed by Gerry Manacsa.

Headlines and body text are Jubilat Light and Prenton Light, respectively.

Articles and links are published through WordPress.

INTERESTS

I blog for fun. I write posts related to cycling, endurance events, human health, fitness, food, tools, gadgets, geekery, space, aviation, adventures, travel, and lessons along the way.

I advocate for:

  • aerospace and terrestrial health and wellness
  • high-touch and efficient use of technology in preventive medical and health coaching practices
  • mindfulness and connectivity in built environments
  • space exploration
  • creativity and sustainability in global and urban health
  • creativity in anti-creative environments

BACKSTORY

I turned on the online switch with a page as timelessboulevard on Geocities— my first attempt at a website back in 2004. Then, with a 2 MP HP pocket camera, Canon Powershot A410, and a Canon 40D, shared away on Blogspot— my photography blog which I began in 2005. My photoblog is still living, though mired in inertia. My last post was in 2009.

The Story of Healing, my medicine 2.0, social media, and technology blog, began in 2007. Through the Story of Healing, I had ‘met’ many interesting medical geeks in the blogosphere. The Story of Healing is also still living but had served its time and concept for three good years from 2007 till 2010—it will continue to rest for now.

Since 2006, I have been, and still am, on Twitter. Though I still share photos of my coffee stops, I have since stopped talking about cereal for breakfast.

Timeless Boulevard, b. 2013, is my attempt at coming back to writing online again, post-Facebook ketosis. I am happy to be back.
